2012 in review
Saturday Night Live
This has been a big year for the young Hollywood crowd! Channing Tatum made the cover of People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, Taylor Swift dated both a Kennedy and a New Direction, and Lena Dunham did everything else. But now that the year is coming to an end, it’s time we hand out the awards like “Best Smile” and “Most Likely to Become President” (both go to Ryan Gosling). Give a hand for your 2012 Class of Celebrity Superlatives!
Last night, Nikke Finke reported that Lorne Michaels may be fishing around for some new lady talent for Saturday Night Live, what with Kristen Wiig possibly leaving the show (tired of appearing in every sketch, we assume) along with Abby Elliott, who had a Fox show but then it fell through but who knows.
That leaves Nasim Pedrad and Vanessa Bayer (who is still only a featured actor, which is a step below the regular cast in terms of job security, and a step above Paul Brittain, whose whereabouts are still unknown), as the only other female cast members.
So who are you placing your money on Lorne Michaels hiring for at least a season? And can the show really handle five women comedians at one time?
